Scepter/dagger and scepter focus looks like it’s gonna be good for power. The fire/earth #3 on scepter along with dragons tooth does a good amount of burst. I’m interested to play around with it some more.
At least there’s butt capes AMIRITE?
Ain’t nobody got time for that
You wont. It’s already engrained.
Especially at the start of a match. Everyone knows we are at our most vulnerable at 0 LF, and they try to kill us before we can get into that first shroud.
I’d recommend practice. After using dagger extensively pre-HoT, I had a hard time adjusting too. GS was so slow in comparison, and with the telegraphs, people knew what to look for. I persisted, mostly out of stubbornness because I needed to use my new toy, and eventually got to the place where I hardly have any issues landing GS attacks. Not to mention, GS offers some awesome things.I’d be lying if I said my favorite thing wasn’t using GS5 to rip a DH off the ledge at center in the Forrest map. They think it’s safe to pewpew until I claw their kitten into the melee scuffle.
Good. Name the illusion “Illusionary Thief” just to cement their one way ticket off a rooftop.
I’ll be honest here, it makes sense to me…
Maybe I’m getting a little RP here, but if you were hiding in plain sight, and something I shot/threw at you suddenly bounced back in my face, don’t you think the jig would be up?
Great info bhawb, thank you. I’ve been tempted to try out MM for something different. Gonna give it a shot today.
Just a thought here, but if your goal is a legendary, you’re probably better off turning your laurels into T6 mats instead of spending em on ascended gear.
CTF is partially there in Spirit Watch already.
A WSG style CTF would be fun though.
I agree with most points as a non-ele.
Ele isn’t the problem, burn is. Sustain is fine. Non-burn dmg is fine. Reduce burn stacks across the board.
Burning is definitely a problem right now, and not just with ele.
My rabid engy does 17k dmg from a single shot of blowtorch if within 250.
That’s a nasty, unforgiving burn.
I have to admit, my favorite thing about playing necro (power, not cele) is standing in RoF on purpose (like a boss) so I can toss the burn stacks back to the ele and watch them melt themselves.
I’m sorry, but the mantra nerfs did not wreck the spec. It’s still very, very strong.
Your suggestions would totally wreck mesmer for pvp. We already do extreme burst without phantasms. You simply cannot increase that for the sake of pve.
Furthermore, the new chrono trait (forget the name) that allows you to shatter phantasms once before they die will go a long way in this regard.
kitten if you ask me.
Vit/tough with power is fine, but with condi it’s OP?
How bout we just open Stat variety first.
You can have just about any power combo, yet condi stats are slim pickins.
I’m tired of running precision on my pure conditions build because theres no condi/tough/vit option.
Strongly disagree that power well necro is bottom tier. The dmg is extremely high and survivability is still darn good. I’ve been playing it the last week or so and absolutely love it. 1v1s aren’t a problem unless it’s a pesky thief with no LF. Many 2v1s are doable too.
I’d much rather /dance or do back flips in the mist than do anything remotely productive.
- Said no one ever
Power rifle is the most common.
I don’t engy much, but when I do, I prefer (dos equis) to run something different. I like a p/p HGH conditions build. It’s squishy, and it suck when your burn gets cleansed, but man can it be fun.
18k burn unbuffed from a close range blowtorch.
So let me get this straight, in a meta FLOODED with extreme burst, your problem is burn? Let’s face it, most classes that utilize burn, have to rely on it, because they don’t have many cover condis. Nerf it, and you Nerf the ability for condis to remain remotely competative. My engineers Blowtorch hits for 18k from within 250, but guess what, it usually only lasts 2-3 ticks. There are so many classes with reliable and accessible clears, that condition classes are hard to come by these days.
I’ve been bunkering plenty lately. Had a 5 min 1v4 yesterday. It’s doable. I run a condition shatter build with scepter/torch and staff.
